Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem.
- The Consumer Rights Act 2015 sets out the responsibilities traders have for selling goods.
- Goods have to be of satisfactory quality and fit for their purpose.
- If buying second-hand goods, the quality will be lower depending on the age and price.
- The Act does not apply to private sales.
- If you purchased the product with a credit card, you may be able to reclaim your money from the credit card company under a ‘section 75 claim’ of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your legal dispute over a faulty product, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Often we will take cases on a conditional fee basis (also known as “no win no fee”).
Where this is not suitable we offer fixed fees and discounted hourly rates. For certain cases we will also consider a damages based agreement, where we receive a limited proportion of damages if the case is successful and nothing if it is not.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
